"Chlebanowski told the executive "you could always have your CEO kidnapped and then get your house broken into by a SWAT team."  "The comment he had made was to a vice president who reports directly to the CEO, and so the humor was lost on that person,"

No shiat, really? He didn't pick up on a vague reference to a 23 year old movie? What a moron!

Yep, that pretty much sounds like corporate America for you. Self entitled elitist pricks who upon hearing a good natured joke, go full retard and fire a good employee over nothing. This is as bad as a school suspending a student for drawing a gun on paper, or hugging someone. Retardation has taken over for common sense. And they wonder why guy's show up at work with a high powered rifle.

seriously, i never thought this movie had so many haters!

i know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's easily my favorite of the 3 good Nat'l Lampoons Vacation movies

European Vacation and Vacation are tied for a very close 2nd


Nice troll attempt. You'll get a couple. I'll give you 4/10,. You shouldn't have tried to equate Vacation with European Vacation, though That cost you 2-3 points..

Sometimes I imagine the grocer's apostrophe as a wire coat hanger, and myself Joan Crawford beating the crap out of the spongmonkey that used it. Then I remember that I live in a state where bud is legal, and it's all better.
Plural = no apostrophe.
Possessive or contraction = apostrophe
Exception: "it's"  is ONLY used to mean "it is" or "it has". The possessive form is "its"

ringersol: gunga galunga: "Don't get why so many revere it as one of their favorite Christmas movies."

Probably because Live Action Christmas is a weak category.

You have A CHRISTMAS STORY, which is pretty awesome.
And then you have some decent-but-flawed stuff: THE REF, SCROOGED, CHRISTMAS VACATION, BAD SANTA, ELF
But what else would you throw into a top 5 if not those? MIXED NUTS? JINGLE ALL THE WAY? CHRISTMAS WITH THE KRANKS? TRAPPED IN PARADISE? THE SANTA CLAUSE? HOME ALONE?

So... yeah, weak category.


Joking right? Miracle on 54th st, Its a wonderful life, We're no angles, Die hard, Eyes wide shut?

Having worked for Principal Financial, I can tell you that they are humorless bunch when it comes to even a hint of violence.

Case One:
They spend a crapload of money on art work for their buildings.  One painting they bought from a rather well known modern painter had two guys fighting in a row boat, one with a knife.  Yeah, stupids subject, but...
anyway, a VP saw it, freaked the fark out and got someone TO PAINT OUT/OVER THE KNIFE.

Case Two:
I handled disability claims there.  One day, a claimant got pissed off that his disability checks were screwed up, solely due to his employer, our insured.  He called me up and told me he had had enough and was thinking of grabbing his gun and going to the office of his employer and "straightening them out," then hung up on me.  Mind you, our office was in Iowa and the insured's office and the claimant were both in Pennsylvania.  I called out insured and gave them a heads up, i.e., farking lock the doors and call the cops.  I then went over to my supervisor and informed her.  She proceeded to chew me out for not informing OUR security first!  Christ, we are two days drive from the guy and he didn't threaten me or my company, but I'm to run to our security first?
